Housing Support Services (HSS)

Koy Saechao, Program Director

Yolo County

Housing Support Services (HSS) provides services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The program offers adults with a history of mental illness and homelessness, or a chronic risk of homelessness, a variety of supports to maintain successful housing and ongoing stability in the community. These include: supportive housing, daily living skills training, community integration skill development, volunteer work opportunities, collaboration with the Yolo Mental Health Wellness Team, and referral/linkage to necessary community services.

The HSS staff members work within a recovery model, emphasizing wellness, resilience, client choice and harm reduction intervention strategies.

Our goal is to assist all clients to benefit from supports by realizing their individual strengths, becoming more confident, competent members of their community, able to cultivate their own unique, meaningful life roles.
